. i thank shelly for her remarks, i thank -- steven -- i want do you elect them because president obama needs some people in congress that are also committed to build a 21st century american middle class and one that lets poor folks work their way in to the middle class. [cheering and applause] you know, it was amazing, i was thinking, i was sitting here trying to contrast in my mind governor romney's account for the 47% of americans that don't pay income taxes, 60% of whom work 40 hours a week and have children in their homes. and until this republican congress and this nominee and this campaign, we had broad bipartisan support from democrats and republicans with a proposition that if you work 40 hours a week and you have children in your house, they ought not to grow up in poverty.
